Could Angels Be Blessed
Could Angels Be Blessed
By Nancy Kiefer.

Cast: 1m., 5w. Set in Cleveland in the summer of 1945, Could Angels Be Blessed deals with intolerance. When a young soldier visits the home of his friend who has died, the women who meet him- the dead man's mother, aunt, cousin and friend-are anxious to share their grief and open their homes. However, the young soldier brings with him some startling revelations which challenge their understanding of love and courage. The critic for the Memphis Commercial Appeal said of the play, "This poignant look at postwar America subtly addresses themes of intolerance and the suffering of those who don't fit into the 'normal' mode ..." "Kiefer's portrait of the mother's conflict between the love of her son and what her world tells her she should think of homosexuality is beautifully handled." (Gay People 's Chronicle) Unit set.
